What psychological theories do you use the most? AEDP is the theoretical orientation I lean on the most, with its focus on emotion as the basis of our adaptive power in a relational environment.

I have a masters degree in family systems and have studied chemical dependency recovery, working several hundred hours with opiate dependent clients.

In 2005 I started a private practice in Edmonds.
